When it comes to food, my will power is usually zero. My mom is the best cook, I’m sure many kids say that about someone in their family. She always made sooo much good food. When I was a kid my parents would always tell us” don’t waste your food” since food is a privilege and both my parents grew up with that mentality since food was always hard to come by. Although I understand how they try not to waste food cause we are fortunate enough to have food on the table, it means my pant size was always sky rocketing. When we visited them it came with the huge yummy portions with it.
I wasn’t used to watching my portions as a kid until I started working after college and decided to get into shape. Eating in bulk became a thing of the past. Yet whenever I visit family my will power goes back to zero. Hahah. I go back to eating the same stuff again, not watching my portions then I am left struggling to go back to a healthy weight again.
If only it is as easy to lose weight from the holiday/family gathering feast the same way it is to put it on in the first place.
One thing that works for sure….food motivation..hahah…shhhh…that’s my secret.
